Cancer Genomics Cloud

Dockstore integrates with the Cancer Genomics Cloud (CGC) platform, allowing you to launch CWL-based workflows from Dockstore in the CGC. Here is some information on what that looks like from a user point of view in a mini tutorial.

Exporting into CGC

When browsing CWL workflows from within Dockstore, you will see a “Launch with CGC” button on the right. The currently selected version of the workflow will be exported.

If not logged into the CGC, you will be prompted to login. Otherwise, or after login, you will be presented with the following screen.

You will need to pick a project to export it into. The project must already exist.

Then hit the “Import” button and continue from within the CGC interface to configure and run your workflow.


  1. While we support launching of CWL workflows, tools as listed in Dockstore are currently not supported.

  2. The CGC does not currently support http(s) based imports in CWL. Dockstore disables the Launch with CGC button if the selected version has any http(s) imports.

  3. Only the CWL language is supported.
